  1. hi,

    I want tremote control a win 7 laptop via a vista pc. They are both in the same workgroup - and connected via wifi.

    As both 'os' are home premuim is seems they lack what is built into the business (or non home) editions.

    I don't want to do much - I just want to have a view of what my son is upto on his laptop !

    Any ideas how to do this or what software to use ?

    Some sort of VNC software - such as UltraVNC

    Try Teamviewer http://teamviewer.com, it works great and is very simple, I've used it for years on many systems running Windows XP, Vista and 7. And it's free for non-commercial use.
